Wild Colonial Bhoys is more than just an Irish band – they are an Irish American band. Theirs is like a blended whiskey: it’s a musical melding of both the old and the new, from the peat smoke scent of the ould sod to the can-do spirit that embodies the American dream.

Growing up in an Irish American family, singer Adam Coolong says, “was really a combination of those two traditions, and it’s distinct experience from either one alone, really. On one hand I enjoyed American things like backyard barbecues, baseball and Fourth of July fireworks, but on the other we had Irish ballad-singing at our weddings and wakes, the older generation in the corner telling stories of emigration and about finding their way in a new country. It was really sort of like having a foot in both camps.”


This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
